Review 1 for Grannick's Bitter Apple Cat Taste Deterrent
He hates the taste!
PostedDecember 4, 2014
from Bakersfield, Ca
I have a 9 week old kitten who chewed on laptop cords, cell phone cords, etc. I purchased this stuff and I rubbed it onto my cords and even the cords to the Christmas tree. My little guy went to chew on my cell phone cord and as soon as the cord went into his mouth- the faster it got out of his mouth. He made the funniest faces and ever since then- he has since then not chewed on any of the cords. I just wished there was a spray for this like there is for the dogs so I could spray the Christmas tree. It would have gotten 5 paws if there was a spray.
I would recommend this to a friend!

Does NOT work...we wanted something for cords, upholstery (curtains, rugs) and this didn't do the trick...
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Review 3 for Grannick's Bitter Apple Cat Taste Deterrent
Bitter Apple works!

My cats hate the taste of this stuff. It worked to keep them from chewing cords, and when one of my cats kept aggravating a hot spot after it healed, I put Bitter Apple on it--she stopped chewing at it, and it soon healed. Some cats actually get used to the flavor of this stuff (I knew a cat who persistently chewed even though she didn't like the taste), but if you get them started before they get into the chewing habit, it can work. As a bonus, a lot of cats also hate the smell, especially if they associate the smell with that awful taste, so it can act as an indoor repellent too. For my cats the level of effectiveness in this respect depends on how much they really want the item in question.
